Everyone that heads to the NC State Farmer's Market in Raleigh knows that Johnston County farmers have a wonderful reputation for quality produce, flowers and local products. Today, area farmers are offering these same products at local farmer's markets. You may like to pick-your-own or drop by the market and gather what you need, either way you know it's locally grown, fresh, and you can even get to know our farmers -- that's a plus!!!!
